DOD Gunslinger Mosfet Distortion
Amp like distortion is a term that gets thrown around a lot. With more and more pedal companies trying to get in on the amp like drive market it can take something really special to stand out from the crowd. That is exactly what the DOD Gunslinger does with its versatile tone range that can take you from a high headroom crunch using an 18v power supple to crushing high gain when your really need the grind.
Just by saying those two words some of you will already be about to hit the buy button. Mosfet circuits are well known for closely replicating not only the dynamic response of preamp valves but with better reliability so you get the same tone every time you turn on the amplifier. The other big advantage of a mosfet circuit is that it responds like your amp when you turn down your guitars volume control so you can go from clean to crushing without ever touching the pedal.
Usable From 1 To 10
If you have played a lot of different drive pedals you will know that finding a usable tone on some pedals can be an absolute pain. That is not the case with this pedal as no matter where you have the gain, level, low and high controls you will get a usable tone. By opting for an active EQ circuit that can both cut and boost even down at 0 or up at 10 your sound is never too boomy or too harsh.

From explosive chord work to high velocity leads, the new DOD Gunslinger Mosfet Distortion has the touch sensitivity, string-separation and saturation to do all your dirty work.
